Music | Why I love Spotify

Spotify. Perhaps the world's life saviour in listening to music without having the need to turn to illegally downloading all the possible music. I am quite late to jumping onto the Spotify bandwagon, but I'm really glad that I did, because truth be told, I'm slightly obsessed. Here's why.

Spotify is a web app that you download onto your computer and basically, it's the biggest musical library on your laptop... and the best part? It's completely free. Well, I'm kind of lying. There's a premium and a free version. The premium version offers a free download of all the songs to listen to while you don't have any wi-fi (but I love the free one all the same). It was founded in 2006 and it streams all sorts of music, from indie to kids' tunes, to hip hop, metal, anything your heart desires.

You can search and browse through various artists, genres, albums, record label and perhaps my favourite features... the playlist. You have so many playlist on offer from other users of the app, from the app itself, anything. There are literary no genres that Spotify hasn't done a playlist for; studying, chilling out, partying, classical music, punk, rock, pop, work-out, sleep, jazz, the whole hog. There are in total 33 moods/genres, so I bet my ass there will be something for everyone.

They also have their own sessions called SXSW or otherwise known, The Spotify House, where bands and artists come to perform acoustic or unplugged versions of their songs and it's perhaps one of the most amazing things, just to see that pure talent. Plus, everything is recorded, and so, in a matter of days (perhaps even singular, one day) it will be in the Spotify library and boom, new music to listen to!

You can create your own playlists, share them with the world and discover new music, just like with YouTube, only there certainly won't be any pitched versions and the quality of the sound will be amazing. The only downside to the app is the fact that I cannot listen to it on the go without any wi-fi, but hey, I'll live!

Do you have Spotify? What do you think of it? Let me know and I shall see you soon!
